The “Home Alone” poster and image of a screaming Kevin McAlllister (Macaulay Culkin) with his hands on his face was inspired on the famous painting The Scream by Edvard Munch. (For more about the iconic work, check out this graphic titled “The Scream Franchise: Deconstructing Munch’s Famous Painting” in Lapham’s Quarterly.)
